Intro
Yeah, Holler at ya boy
(Holler at ya boy.)
New Shit, do remember
(Holler at ya boy)
Going back, a few weeks on this one
(Going way way back)
This life isn't for everyone, but for some of us, yeah
(Life is easy)
This song right here is going out to a chldhood mentor of mine, Father John, huh, Holler
Touched me as a kid, uh
(Holler at ya boy)
I want you know, I'm still feeling you
(Holler at ya boy)
Uh-huh bring it
(Life is easy)

Jah didn't kill Johnny
He had a date with death
It was a slow train coming
And we've all got a train to catch
But Lord, take your filthy claws off the rest of my friends.
That is, of course, if they ain't already dead.
I make no demands. I just make amends.
I make my bed and I'm a lie in it
But before I die...please...don't take anymore of my friends.
Don't take anymore of my friends. (x2)
(Life is easy)

The smoke didn't kill Johnny. The drink didn't kill Johnny.
The junk didn't kill Johnny & the women didn't kill Johnny.
Was it the road? I don't know. Was it rock and roll? I don't think so.
But God (God), God (God), God (God),would never kill Johny Cash
(He had a train to catch.)
(He had a date with death)
(And we've all got a train to catch.)

Life is easy.
Holler at ya boy. (Repeat)
